Bill and Hillary Clinton Spend Big in the Hamptons

Like a horde of other wealthy folk, Bill and Hillary Clinton dropped a small fortune on a high-priced rental in the Hamptons this month. The powerful politicos, who rented the past few years on East Hampton’s swish Lily Pond Lane, opted this year to drop about $100,000 for a three-week stay in sleepy (if swank) Amagansett. The shingled mansion, perched on a high bluff that overlooks Napeague Bay, is owned by a couple of New York City-based art collectors and — oddly enough — Republican party donors. There are seven bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, a water-view veranda, broad lawns, a waterside swimming pool and, so the scuttlebutt goes, big-time Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein lives close enough that the Clintons can send a Secret Service agent over to borrow a cup of sugar.

    I find the house unremarkable (perhaps that’s why the Clintons decided it would be a wise choice?)

    But the area looks beautiful, at least in the photos.

    A lovely area of the Hamptons near where Jackson Pollack lived and died.

    It’s not uncommon for owners to remove valuable objects from their homes when renting (especially in this case, where the Secret Service might require temporary alterations for security).

    This is lovely. But, where’s the artwork!? Must have been stashed in a closet ’til the marketing photographer scrammed.
